Easy Cheese-Stuffed Jalapenos Recipe
- 24 medium fresh jalapeno peppers

- 1. Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise; remove seeds and membranes. In a large saucepan, boil peppers in water for 5-10 minutes (the longer you boil the peppers, the milder they become). Drain and rinse in cold water; set aside.
- 2. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and Worcestershire sauce until smooth. Spoon 2 teaspoonfuls into each jalapeno; sprinkle with bacon.
- 3. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 3-5 minutes or until filling is warmed. Yield: 4 dozen.
